Kanye West Talks at Cannes

In an impromptu appearance at the Cannes Lion festival, recently-wed Kanye West dropped some jewels on a seminar crowd with a compelling ‘tech talk’.

“Steve Jobs was my biggest influence,” he said. “Just seeing the way he fought to make things easier for people. After he passed, I made it my life’s mission to do what he did inside of that company. I dream to help raise the palette and raise the taste level of a generation.”

And by expanding our cultural palette, Yeezy means deals like Jay Z’s collab with Samsung and Apple buying Beats By Dre. He even wants to redo Instagram and cleanup the design of the internet.

But if anyone is planning on telling him no, don’t. Just ask Annie Leibovitz, who ‘Ye ranted about during part of his speech. The famed portrait photographer decided not to shoot their wedding just before the big day. And as a result, the honeymooners spent four days retouching their infamous flower wall photo, which definitely didn’t sit well with wifey.

Her reasoning for pulling out? If you ask ‘Ye, she may have been, “scared about the idea of celebrity.” Either way, the number one most liked photo on Instagram still holds true to Mr. West’s mission to “raise the palette.”
